The Festival Flag-raising Ceremony was held at night. The organizers of the XXX International Festival of Arts "Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk" decided to declare the anniversary Forum of Arts open just at a new day break. Exactly at midnight, with the Vitebsk City Hall beat off the end of the day, a colorful show "Time Light" began at the Summer Amphitheater premises.
A bright light overture as if brought back to the Festival origins and illuminated the road to the future. A theatrical performance began with the roar of racing cars and fireworks. The "Koleso" theater, the "Zorka " choreographic ensemble, the "Gadget" dance workshop, the ""School of Stars" theater, the "Larchik" theater and the "Poker" live sculptures studio created a spectacular performance, culminating into a solemn ceremony.
The "Time Light" highlighted the flagpole for the Festival flag. Dimash Kudaybergen, Grand Prix of the XXIV International Pop Song Performers Contest "Vitebsk-2015" Holder (Kazakhstan) and Angelina Lomako, Grand Prix of the XVIII International Children Music Contest "Vitebsk-2020" (Belarus), let the Flag fly up in the sky.
Dimash raises the Festival Flag for the second time, and he considers it to be a great honor, as well as being in Vitebsk again and performing on a lucky for him stage of the Summer Amphitheater.
